Senator Janis Ringhand Statement on Transportation Budget “Deal”

“The transportation budget “deal” is no deal at all for south-central Wisconsin.

I have grave concerns that the backroom deal will indefinitely leave the expansion of I-39/90 in limbo. The completion of this project is critical for safety, regional businesses, jobs and tourism.

We certainly do not need another study on how we can fund our transportation needs.  We know what the options are.

What we need is the fortitude to fund our transportation needs in Wisconsin, and sadly, it just doesn’t seem to be a priority.”
